From the editor: "...short, erotic, graphic, and all in fun. Not meant to answer serious questions. The purpose is to offer an alternative to the ordinary, and to enjoy. "Although somewhat explicit, this Is a very romantic (one reader said mushy—she couldn't resist the pun) story about two warriors who desire a sexual relationship, while serving in a military which forbids homosexuality. When they take a leave on Caprlca, Apollo's parents insist he visit them. How can the two keep Adama and Ma from finding out? What about the hero when Apollo meets the beautiful Serlna?"
In 1983, there was this ad supplement to Slaysu in Universal Translator: "We have some stories available only on a request basis and only to legal adults. This is because many people have strange views on homosexual (or any type of sexual) relationships. If you are offended by such relationships or by stories about such relationships, these stories are not for you. These stories are short, graphic and all in fun. They are not meant to answer serious questions. The whole purpose is to offer an alternative to the ordinary."
